“My mother always taught me that. There was a rule in our house, no calling guys. I wasn’t allowed to call guys, they had to call me. Men like a chase.”
–Avril Lavigne shares the old-fashioned courtship tip that presumably worked wonders in her relationship with Chad Kroeger, especially since he proposed with a monster rock after just one month of dating the “Here’s To Never Growing Up” singer.
Also, you guys, I have to tell you about this photo. So, this morning I found a batch of paparazzi photos titled “Avril Lavigne Departing LAX,” and when I clicked on them, I realized that Chad Kroeger was there with her too, but had been cropped out of all the photos! He was able to photobomb his way into exactly one picture (shown above) with his more famous fiance, which I will be framing and placing above my mantle later today. Oh Chavril, never change.

“We started dating and the next day he was like, ‘You know I’m gonna marry you.’ And I said, ‘I know.’ It was one of those things that we just knew.”
–Avril Lavigne spills some specifics about her whirlwind romance with fiance Chad Kroeger in a joint interview that also included Chad summarizing the pair’s courtship as follows: “it just kind of blossomed into this kind of thing.” You guys, I have to admit that my Chavril obsession has gotten to the point where I literally started sweating when I saw they had done an interview together. I was literally leaking Chavril excitement out of my pores. I’m disgusting. Sorry. CHAVRIL 4EVER. [Us Weekly]
After getting an email announcing that The Weezer Cruise is making its triumphant return in 2014, we got to thinking about celebrity cruises. Everyone from Kate Gosselin to Kenny G has been taking their act to the high seas, but we have yet to see some of our favorite celebs get in on the action (Chavril, where are you?!). Grab your bedazzled bikini and click on the gallery to check out seven imagined celebrity cruises that we really wish were real….
Last year we rewrote some traditional Christmas carols to reflect the awkward reality of modern holiday celebrations. This year we thought we’d give some festive tunes a pop culture twist. Let’s kick things off with three songs to honor the strange twists and turns of three celebrity couples who made headlines this year. Grab some eggnog, do your vocal warm-ups, and join us in a Hollywood holiday serenade… Keep reading »
Congratulations Deryck Wibley! You win for most utterly passive aggressive ex-husband ever. The Sum 41 singer evidently teamed up with a friend to go as his ex-wife Avril Lavigne and her new fiance, Nickelback singer Chad Kroeger. My guess? I bet Deryck and Avril had an exes with benefits thing going on, and then Chad stepped in and ruined the arrangement. Ah, Canadian drama.
Lately I’ve been looking at my closet and feeling an overwhelming sense of “I have nothing to wear!” Luckily though, I just found the magical garment that will instantly fill the gaping void in my wardrobe: a Chavril engagement T-shirt, which celebrates the upcoming Canadian royal wedding of ChAvril LaKroeger, aka Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger. As the model illustrates, it goes perfectly with a heavy smear of black eyeliner and a punk rock attitude. Yep, this is definitely my new fall uniform. [$25, The Chavril Boutique]
“You never know what your parents are going to say when you tell them you’re getting married — especially when it’s with someone they haven’t met yet! My mom is a huge fan of Avril’s, so putting her on the speaker phone and telling her the news was hilarious and equally embarrassing.”
–Nickelback frontman/Canadian dreamboat Chad Kroeger reveals to Hello! Canada that his parents hadn’t met Avril Lavigne prior to the couple’s surprise engagement. Other revelations from the ChAvril cover story? Apparently Chad has yet to visit Avril’s hometown of Napanee, Ontario, but is excited to make the trip and eat at her favorite pizzeria, while Avril is busy planning the wedding, which will be “a huge celebration.” If that ridiculously large rock on her finger is any indication, this wedding will be visible from space. [Us Weekly]
We were shocked and awed when we found out that Avril Lavigne and Nickelback’s Chad Kroeger were some kind of crazy Canadian power couple. We were further stunned to find out Chadders gifted his ladyfriend with a ginormous crack rock of an engagement ring — featuring a 14-carat diamond that’s estimated to cost around $800,000. I guess it actually pays to be the most hated band in the world.
Above, we’ve gathered several items that weigh about as much as the stone in Avril’s ring. I hope she’s been doing finger exercises…
